Pregnancy announcements are so much fun to do, but it can be so hard to find out the perfect way to announce to your partner that you’re pregnant.
I had so much fun with this when I was telling my husband about each of our pregnancies!

Our first pregnancy I just woke him up and showed him the pregnancy test. I wish I had some cute way to announce to him so I knew the second time I was going to be cuter about it.
The second time I wrote him a cute card and showed him my test and we were so pumped together.
The third time I got him a book about fathers, wrote a card and showed him the test. We both balled our eyes out while he was reading the card I got him because we lost both of our two previous babies.
And with our third baby we had a tough time getting pregnant again, so we were both pretty emotional, raw, and very happy about our pregnancy.
It was such a tender moment and I was so grateful that I took the time to make the moment meaningful to him too.
I hope that this list of ideas will help you find the perfect way to announce to your partner that you’re pregnant. And I hope that when you announce to your partner that you will be able to have such a tender moment together.
Save this list for later as well so you can remember them.
Hide the Pregnancy Test
Hide the pregnancy test somewhere in the house and make a treasure map leading to the test.
You could also your test and do a scavenger hunt.
There are so many adorable pregnancy announcement shirts out there.
This is the way my husband and I announced it to our parents, it did take them a while to understand, but it was a lot of fun!
You could give him a onesie that says “I love my Daddy”
I have also seen some that are more witty and say “I am proof daddy doesn’t always play video games”
There are so many cute options with gifting a onesie to him!
You could bake sugar cookies or cupcakes and ice words onto them announcing that you’re pregnant.
You could bake a cake and ice it with your announcement. Put anything that is significant to both of y’all.
I did this and a book for my husband. I put on the card the size our baby which was a mustard seed. Then I taped a little mustard seed onto the card.
You can write a cute note about how great of a dad he will be.
If you are good at baking you could make homemade fortune cookies with a message inside.
Put an eviction notice of the babies due date on his man cave door.
Paint your Belly
Paint a loading sign on your tummy or if you are super artistic you could paint a baby on your tummy.
At the bottom of the coffee cup you can have it etched with “You’re going to be a daddy” or “Congrats you’re a dad!”
Or you could have a mug that says “Best Dad Ever”
If you are poetic you could write a cute poem announcing your pregnancy.
If you are not poetic, but your partner loves poems you could find a cute one online.
I did this for my husband. I got him a cute father’s day book and wrote inside how great of a dad he will be.
You could get a plain cheese pizza and cut up pepperoni in the letters announcing that you’re pregnant.
Or inside of the pizza box you could have a card or paper taped inside the box announcing that you’re pregnant.
If you have a dog you could put balloons and a note around their collar announcing that you are pregnant.
You could also set up a little board and put your dogs next to it. Then take a picture and show it to your partner.
You could order a puzzle that announces your pregnancy.
Get a “best dad” or “#1 dad” keychain. They also have keychains that say “I’m Pregnant”
Message in a Bottle
Write up a cute note and put it in a bottle. You may even find one big enough to put your pregnancy test and a note in it.
Find a plate that says “I’m Pregnant” or “Baby’s plate”
Put caution tape on one of your spare rooms with a note that says “under construction, opening may 2020”
Only Child Expiring
If you have other kids you could get them involved with a shirt or a letter board that says “only child expiring May 2020”
Or I’ve seen kids wear shirts that say Player 1 and the onesie says Player 2.
You could get a picture frame that says “baby” or “#1 dad”
On Etsy or Amazon they have scratch off cards that say “I’m pregnant.”
On the inside you could write a cute note.
Bun in the Oven
You could put a bun in the oven with your pregnancy test and tell your partner to grab the bun from the oven.
Gift wrap the pregnancy test and maybe a couple other baby items.
Write a note and put them inside the baby shoes, then gift it to your partner.
Include your Other Children
If you have any other children find cute ways to have them tell your partner that you are pregnant.
Have diapers delivered to the house and see if he picks up on the hint.
Swap his drink with a baby bottle instead of a normal glass.
Put scrabble letters on your table saying “I’m pregnant!”
Make a slideshow of pictures of you two together and then have an ultrasound picture or have a picture of your pregnancy test.
Or you could make a photo album instead of making a slideshow.
Write it on the mirror and tape your pregnancy test to the mirror.
Write on sticky notes things you love about your partner an paste them around the house leading them to the pregnancy test or a note saying that you’re pregnant.
Put some baby items in a gift basket. Or you could make him a relaxing basket with your pregnancy test in there.
Propose to your partner with your pregnancy test. Ask him if he will be your Baby Daddy.
Make a cake out of diapers with your pregnancy test sticking out of it.
Breakfast in Bed
You could make pancakes for breakfast that say I love dad and bring it to him in bed.
On your table you can set up a bunch of baby stuff with your pregnancy test in the middle of it all.
I hope some of these help you with a way to announce to your partner that you’re pregnant.
